Amazon launches free grocery deliveries for Prime members in some areas



Amazon Fresh, the online delivery giant’s food and grocery service, has up to now charged a £2.99 delivery fee, or a £3.99/mth membership. 

But it’s now announced that those paying for Prime membership – which currently costs £7.99/mth – will be eligible for ‘free’ Amazon Fresh deliveries on orders costing £40 or more. It’s also lowered the minimum spend from £40 to £15, though you’ll be charged a £3.99 delivery fee on orders costing less than £40. 

Amazon Fresh is currently only available in 300 postcodes across London and the south east, though Amazon says it will be rolling out across the UK “by the end of the year”. 

Amazon says delivery will usually be same-day if you place the order before 2pm, and you’ll be given a two-hour window to expect your shopping to be delivered in.

In around 40 postcodes, you’ll usually be able to get same-day delivery (by midnight) for orders placed before 9pm, and can request a shorter one-hour window. If you want this shorter delivery window, you’ll be charged £3.99 for orders costing £40 and over, or £6.99 for orders under £40.
